    Brownell's has some Novaks that will work, so I just need to get those ordered, and then I should be able to get the install done without too much of a hassle.

    In SW Ohio you can also try Vandalia Armory in Vandalia, Ohio. Joe is the guy to call. He can fix you up and install. They will find what you want, order, and install. Mine took a few days to come in and 20 minutes to install. I put a Hi Viz on the front of my Springfield Trophy Match. They use brownells as their primary source.
    Is that the one by the Airport? I bought one pistol there, and then saw the same one for significantly cheaper at my favorite gun store. Very nice store though, but their prices seemed a mite high.

    Well, now I found the sights I need, at a decent price.

    But now I don't know what height front sight I need. I tend to shoot 230gr bullets. Does .190" sound right to anybody?

    I don't know about Springer, but current Colt's use .175". If you go taller than you actually need, you can always file the sight down, if you go too short, it's harder to add metal to the sight.

    Thanks OD, the Novak Rear that Brownell's suggested says it is for rear sights between .175 and .200, so I will probably get to .190" they also suggested, and if it is to high, try to file it down.

    Novaks on my SA Champ are factory standard as well.
